Seeing as tomorrow is the first day of Winter and there is currently snow on the ground with more expected later this week, we finally have boots that will keep the children's feet warm and dry. Best of all, we have them in Sizes 11, 12, 13 and 1.
This is the epitome of effective children's shopping.
We could have bought pink boots for the girls, but red is gender neutral* and this way, each year, I should only have to buy one new pair of boots, provided everyone doesn't go through a growth spurt and skip over sizes.
* I should probably mention that "Hand Me Down Henry" picked out the color, which would be either gender neutral gray or gender neutral red. Since he will be wearing these boots for the next four years, seems only fair that the Little Dude should have some say in the matter.
